Tour of Daniel Island Homes – Video

My friend Terry Haas (of HGTV’s Designed to Sell) has put together a short video tour of a few DI homes. I think it’s an awesome idea since it gives a great overview of the different choices that Daniel Island has to offer. Terry takes us through homes, town homes, and condominiums in the video. What a fabulous way for someone who has never visited DI to get a taste of what we are all about. Thanks Terry! Great job 🙂

This is why I live in Charleston

The weather today is gorgeous. It is 79 degrees outside and the sun is shining. My boys have their very first tee-ball practice today and it seems like the coach is going to be fabulous. The practices and games will be held just a minute from my house at the fields behind the Daniel Island School, unlike 70% of our flag football games last fall (although I hear that’s changing this year). As far as I’m concerned, life couldn’t get any better!

Two of Chad’s friends are coming to town tomorrow night to play in the St. Patrick’s Day member guest tournament here at the Daniel Island Club. It will be a lot of fun to see them! I’m sure that we’ll take some time to go out on the boat if the weather holds up. Here is a photo of the boys at the front of the boat when we were out a couple of weeks ago:


Our other favorite thing to do is to go to the beach. As you can see in the photo below, we even go when it’s a little bit cool… easy to do when it’s 10 minutes away 🙂


 Lastly, here is a photo that I took from our dock a few days ago as the sun was setting. It was breathtaking! I don’t know how well it will show here since I took it on my iPhone but I thought that I would give it a try.


I love this time of year!

Weekend Wrap-Up

What a glorious weekend! The weather was perfect and we had nothing planned other than to spend time with the boys. It couldn’t have been any better.

Yesterday we had a picnic at River Green Park. We enjoy going there because it is pretty secluded and has spectacular views of the marsh and and golf course. The boys brought their fire engine and garbage truck and had a ball pushing them through the lawn and chasing one another. Colin decided that he would pack our picnic lunch so we had a very eclectic mix of food!


I woke up feeling a little under the weather this morning and, by the time I had made our pancakes and eggs, we were running late for church. Unfortunately we did not make it, but we watched a video Bible Study: The Domino Effect that was created by our friends at Wayfarer Minstries ( and had a great discussion. The boys have spring pictures at their preschool tomorrow so we headed to the mall. We had lunch at Jason’s Deli (the boys loved the ice cream below) and found some great new shoes at Stride Rite and some fun spring clothes. We let the boys run the show and they had a ball making decisions about everything. 🙂


I love weekends. They are truly a time to slow down and enjoy life. The boys made “clubhouses” in the playroom where they covered several chairs and a table with blankets and created a series of “rooms”. They have played in there for hours!! They even took our Coleman electric lantern in there and pretended to camp out. It’s so much fun seeing their imagination at work! They are so creative with everything that they do.

New homesites coming in Daniel Island Park


Above is the section of Daniel Island Park where homesites will be offered later this year. This photo is an aerial shot that was taken in February. As you can see, the roads are still under construction and the park areas are not yet installed. The aerial photo below was taken in October and has an overlay in yellow showing a (very preliminary) plan of where the homesites will be located. Just email me if you’d like a PDF with more detailed information.
